Summary: 
I am the fith generation in my family to be making crab/lobster pots from willow, as a family we have made and used these pots for fishing for generations.
Detail: 
The Withy pots are made from Willow grown in Somerset this area has grown and supplied the needs of the fishing families of Budleigh Salterton Devon for decades, the Willow is cut in the winter and made into Crab/Lobster pots throughout Jan-Mar, however i have to keep a certain amount for demonstration purposes at various shows including the Brixham Fishstock festival in Sep which means the willow has to be well soaked to make it pliable enough to be worked again, i am more than happy to teach people on a one to one basis this craft in the hope that they will take up this old way of life before it is gone.
